Marina Bay Sands

It was Vesak day today, May 29th, so we decided to visit Marina Bay Sands which was soft opened at Apr 27th. Our first impression is ... it's BIG !!! Never imagine Singapore might have this kind of ... all in one entertainment/business. There are hotels, shopping, dining, entertainment, sky park, casino and more ...

Art Path

The captivating Marina Bay Sands Art Path comprises a collection of spectacular art installations that were commissioned to integrate with Moshe Safdie's extraordinary architecture. These large-scale pieces will create shapes, moods and interior spaces and will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to visually and physically experience such large-scale artwork.

The site-specific works are positioned to create an inspiring and breathtaking path through the Marina Bay Sands site. This is one of the largest art commissions ever completed as part of an integrated architectural process - all with internationally renowned artists including Antony Gormley and Ned Kahn.

Under construction
Marina Bay Sands will be home to two spectacular, state-of-the-art theatres offering a line-up of must-see headline acts from around the world.

From Classical to Pop to Broadway to Cabaret, our theaters will showcase Asia's most comprehensive variety of international and local performers and programs.
 The Museum

Designed as a symbolic gesture of welcome to guests from across the globe, the lotus-shaped Museum at Marina Bay Sands is set to become a premier destination for major international touring exhibitions from the most renowned collections in the world.
Embracing a spectrum of influences from the relationship between art & science, to media & technology, to design & architecture, this unique structure will feature over 60,000 square feet of galleries, both permanent and touring exhibitions that will inspire visitors from the region and beyond.

Sky Park
The Sands SkyPark is an awe-inspiring engineering wonder. This unique structural masterpiece, designed by visionary architect Moshe Safdie, floats atop the three soaring Marina Bay Sands hotel towers 200m in the sky.

Stretching longer than the Eiffel tower laid down or four and a half A380 Jumbo Jets, with an impressive 12,400 square meters of space, the Sands SkyPark can host up to 3900 people. The gravity-defying cantilever is one of the largest of its kind in the world. From this privileged observation deck, hundreds of visitors at a time can feast their eyes on the unforgettable panorama view.

An absolute paradise in the sky, the Sands SkyPark features idyllic landscaped gardens that are home to 250 types of trees and 650 types of plants. An iridescent swimming pool links across the span of the three hotel towers, with a surreal infinity edge overlooking the city.
